BIOGRAPHY

The 1911 Census lists Harold as an apprentice bricklayer, living in Union Street. He served in the Army in the First World War during which time he was wounded on two occasions. He was signed by the Saints on demobilisation. His 49 matches for the club yielded 16 tries including a hat trick in the home victory over Barrow in 1921 and a brace against Featherstone Rovers. He was both creative and mobile. In January 1923 he was transferred to Bramley, where he became captain.

In 1939 he was living in Hardshaw Street, St Helens. When he died in December 1971, at the age of 75, the St Helens Newspaper gave us some further details of his life. He was a member of the Royal Engineers [Territorials] for 26 years. He was also the Local Secretary of the St Helens branch of the Associated Union of Building Trades Workers. Harold was also a staunch church goer too.

Can you help the SHS by supplying his photograph or any other personal or playing details?
